Default Re: Benitez-Duran at 140

Again, keep in mind that I was very surprised at how Benitez handled him when they did meet, so this may not be a very meaningful prognosis.

But do you think the same way about him as some others do that Wilfred had the style to beat Duran by boxing smartly? I feel that when you hurt even some of the better boxers that the game plan goes out the window as in the first Leonard-Duran fight.
